It is quite surprising that the 5.5-inch phone would split open like this especially when separating the display side of the handset itself requires a lot of force and delicate hands plus a combination of prying tools.

CNET, along with several other tech news sites also reported that multiple reports had come in about the issue.

Following the recent complaints, Apple has now confirmed that it is investigating the issue, according to TechCrunch. There was no external sign of burning nor any chemical reaction, and the phone's insides were exposed.

It must be noted here that Apple's iPhone 8 Plus is just cracking open and there are no incidents of this phone catching fire and tearing open with an impact.


Chris Ogden of Rochester, New York told us that he had used his 256GB silver iPhone 8 Plus for a week when he noticed the device had been swelling so much that it actually split the screen open. Apple responded by extending the warranty of its wearables but later stated that it was not a safety issue like the iPhone 8 bursting open and there was no need of a recall yet. Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, Greece and finally event in Canada began to react to occurrence of different countries. "A very small number" of iPhone 6S experienced unexpected shutdowns due to battery issues, Apple acknowledged past year. Let's also determine that you routinely look at potential potential security issues with Apple's devices.

Apple's iPhone is no stranger to controversy and the newest release is no exception.

Apple Inc. shares fell $0.33 (-0.21%) in premarket trading Friday. More details emerging on the Taiwanese issue claimed that the battery of the iPhone 8 had swollen to an unusal amount.

Some investors worry whether pre-orders for the device were well below previous launches, although some Apple fans are waiting for the premium iPhone X due out in early November.
